Governor John Carney has nominated Prickett Jones & Elliot, P.A. partner Paul A. Fioravanti, Jr. to the Delaware Court of Chancery. The seat was left open by Justice Tamika Montgomery-Reeves’ nomination to the Delaware Supreme Court. At Prickett Jones, Fioravanti focused on corporate and commercial litigation, including mergers and acquisitions, fiduciary duty obligations, corporate governance, and LLC litigation. The Delaware Senate is expected to consider his nomination later this month. As covered in this Law360 article [$$$], the nomination comes amid a series of changes on Delaware’s Court of Chancery and Supreme Court, including the retirement of Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Leo E. Strine, Jr. and the expansion of the Court of Chancery from five to seven vice chancellors.
